    Customer Testimonial

              I recently had work done on my foundation by your company. I am writing to express my absolute satisfaction with the work done and with the crew that performed the work. I am very certain that I got a great value and service for the fee that I paid your company. I would like to specifically commend your foreman, Victor and his workers. They were polite, efficient, effective and very understanding of my questions and concerns. I knew very little about the process of jacking up my foundation. Victor was patient and thorough in his explanation of the process. I thank him and hope that you commend and compensate him in accord with his skill. I live in a neighborhood populated by a lot of very friendly, well-meaning but occasionally intrusive retirees who felt it necessary to talk to Victor about his work. Victor handled them politely, respectfully and in a way that maintained the friendly nature of my neighborhood. Again I thank and commend Victor and his crew. In general, the entire process was as painless and worry free as such an extensive and expensive process could be. I thank your company and your employees for their efforts. I look forward to spreading your excellent and well-earned reputation to anyone who asks or is willing to listen.

    Customer Testimonial

              We write to commend your workers. The stabilization of our home required 15 piers, only 4 of which were outside. Of the remaining 11, 3 were inside where men could stand upright and 8 were in a crawl space less than 3 ½ feet high. The job lasted from September 20th through September 27th. You may recall the weather during that period. It was unseasonably hot and humid. The digging of every hole required brutal, dirt, sweaty work, especially in an airless crawl space. Your employees were impressive in accomplishing this task. The installation of the piers was performed with equal dedication and we commend especially Victor who was extraordinary in our opinion. Not only did he work hard and skillfully, he kept us fully informed as the work proceeded. It was a pleasure to shake his hand at the conclusion of the project. We wanted to shake Jose’s hand as well but he and his crew had to leave while we were inside doing the necessary paperwork. He and his crew deserve praise as well, and Jose too kept us well informed during the work. Starting with Matt Kraus, we thank you, your company, and especially those employees who came to our home. Everyone treated us with courtesy and our house was respected. We believe you all saved our house. Thank you, Peter and Shirley McFadden

  • CarbonArmor in Sleepy Hollow, NY
    Before
    CarbonArmor in Sleepy Hollow, NY
    After

    This Sleepy Hollow, NY home had cracking and bowing walls that was caused from soil expansion. The homeowner was very concerned for the safety of his home and wanted to take care of the problem immediately. After doing some research, he decided to set an appointment with Connecticut Basement Systems to help find him a solution. 

    Glen Kerpchar was the Sales Representative who arrived at the home the day of the appointment. He concluded that in order to fix the bowing of the walls, Carbon Armor would need to be installed. He explained the benefits of the product and the homeowner agreed that this was the best solution and quickly set an appointment for a production date.

    On the day of production, Victor Alves and his crew installed the CarbonArmor. The CarbonArmor is a great product because it stabilizes your home’s foundation walls by using fiber-reinforced polymers which are 10-times stronger than steel. The ArmorLock brackets bind and secure the Carbon Armor straps to the floor joists making it a great solution, non-invasive, and ideal for stabilizing bowing and leaning walls.  

    With the CarbonArmor fully installed, the homeowner now has a peace of mind of the structure of his home!
